Curry Leaf Plant (Murraya Koenigii)

Murraya koenigii

The aromatic leaves of this plant are used to flavor many Indian dishes much like bay leaves, especially in curries with fish or coconut milk. The original Indian word "Kari" refers to the sauce of these piquant dishes, hence the name curry leaf. In some parts of India, they are referred to as meetha or sweet neem. 

Curry leaves are extensively used in Southern India and Sri Lanka, but are also of some importance in Northern India. Together with South Indian immigrants, curry leaves reached Malaysia, South Africa and Reunion island.

An easy to raise plant, that needs full sun, grows to 1-3 feet in containers, minimum temperature 55 degrees, blooms in summer. Use any commercial soil mix that is peat or coir based. The soil should be allowed to thoroughly dry between waterings. The plant should be moved indoors during the winter months except in Southern Florida. Water sparingly during the winter months. 

The leaves are highly valued as seasoning in southern and west-coast Indian and Sri Lankan cooking especially in curries, usually fried along with the chopped onion in the first stage of the preparation. They are also used to make thoranvadarasam and kadhi. In their fresh form, they have a short shelf life and do not keep well in the refrigerator. They do, however, keep quite well frozen if well wrapped.

Leaves can also be harvested from home-raised plants as it is also fairly easily grown in warmer areas of the world, or in containers where the climate is not supportive outdoors.

The leaves of Murraya koenigii are also used as an herb in Ayurvedic medicine. They are believed to possess anti-diabetic properties 

Our plants currently are 5-6" tall of the  Regular variety (fast growing, large long leaf)

 

Sizes are measured from the base of the soil to the top of the plant.
